Interior vs Exterior Drain Tile
Why Choose Interior Drain Tile
- Unlike exterior drain tile, interior drain tile relieves hydrostatic pressure under the floor. That is, when water forces its way up from cracks in your basement floor, the interior drain tile will collect and direct it to the sump pump.
- Water that accumulates in basement window wells and flows over into the basement can be caught by the interior drain tile.
- Installing it is quick and requires no excavation outside the home.
Why Choose Exterior Drain Tile
- Water passing through your foundation wall will, over time, compromise its integrity. An exterior drain tile prevents this by keeping water away from the foundation wall, keeping the basement dry and protecting the wall itself.
- For homes that have a foundation built with stones, concrete blocks, or bricks, exterior drain tile is effective for preventing water from leaking through the mortar used to keep the masonry together. It does this by redirecting the water before it gets to the wall.
- For those who already have a finished and furnished basement, but have seepage issues, exterior drain tile is the perfect solution. That’s because installation is done outside the basement without disrupting any part of your already finished basement.
